Introducing pipelining: Cardano's consensus layer scaling solution
Pipelining is one of the key scaling improvements to be deployed in 2022. Here’s how it works and why it matters

You’d be forgiven for thinking that pipelining sounds like a remodelling procedure a plumber might employ. In a way, this isn’t too far from the truth. Pipelining is, effectively, an evolution in Cardano’s ‘plumbing’. It is a key element in our scaling plan this year, one in the series of published steps covering our methodical approach to flex Cardano’s capacity as the…
The beating heart of a fast-growing network
At the core of the Cardano network lies the node. Here’s how this integral technology will play its part as we scale Cardano during 2022

In a recent post, we discussed our methodical approach to preparing Cardano for its expected growth over the coming weeks and months. As more and more decentralized applications make Cardano their home, and as the decentralized finance (DeFi) and ‘RealFi’ ecosystem expands and evolves, the blockchain needs to be able to perform accordingly.
Cardano is entering the Basho phase with a focus on optimization, scaling, and network growth. We anticipate a significant increase in transactional traffic over the months ahead, and here’s where we start the process of flexing to meet this. Improvements to the core node are part of this and we have packed node v1.33.0 full of new features and improvements to existing elements, upping…
Slow and steady wins the race: network evolution for network growth
After a successful start to Cardano’s smart contract era, we’ll soon make the first in a program of network adjustments to support future growth

From its conception, Cardano has been architected as a platform to best balance the perennial trade-offs of security, scalability and decentralization. Therefore we have architected and built a solid and secure network layer, yet with the flexibility to grow and scale to support a global base of millions of users.
With a secure, highly decentralized proof of stake network now…
